Welcome to the Modern Cloth Momma, Imagine AI2 review and giveaway sponsored by Nicki's Diapers!
A few weeks ago, I was provided with an Imagine AI2 shell and 3 inserts
to test and review by Nicki's Diapers. The following are my observations and experiences
using this diaper. While the diaper was provided for me to review, all
opinions, experiences, and action shots are my own.
I was very excited to be able to test and review one of the Imagine AI2
diapers. As a huge fan of all in two diapers, I love seeing how the
different ones work on my children.
My daughter is the only one using diapers during the day, so all my observations are from using it on her.
These shells are an affordable $12.95 each, none packs of three inserts
are $9.95 for size 1, and $10.95 for size 2. They are an excellent
quality and have great advantages over some of the other brands out
there. They have double layer PLU with inner flaps to cover the front
and back of the snapped in insert. This also keeps the exposed PLU
touching your baby limited.
They have three rise settings running approximately 1st row: Small (8-15
pounds), 2nd row: Medium (15-23 pounds), 3rd row: Large (23-35+
pounds). They have double wing snaps or aplix to fasten the diapers.
Combined with two sizes of fleece topped, four layer microfiber
inserts. Size 1 inserts fit babies 8-19 pounds and Size 2 inserts fit
babies 20-35+ pounds, these could last you easily from infancy to potty
Care instructions are simple (per the Nicki's Diapers site):
Knock solids into toilet (reuse shell until soiled or wash day)
Unsnap inserts from shell
Fasten laundry tabs for hook & loop closure
Cold rinse or light wash - no detergent
Warm or hot wash with additive free detergent
Tumble dry low or line dry
No fabric softeners or rash cream
They come in several attractive colors and prints as well: Snow, Emerald, Marigold, Indigo, Raspberry, Flutter, Rawr, and Trumpet. There
are even matching baby legs available for $5.99 each on sale.
My first observation was the fast (as usual) shipping from Nicki's
Diapers. This, by far, is my favorite online diaper and baby supply
store. The fast shipping and wonderful customer service, before,
during, and after a sale is very important to me. I received the
Imagine shell in Flutter, and three, size 2 inserts.
Luckily, it was wash day so I could run them through the one wash and dry they needed to be able to use them.
The shell is is very easy to adjust. I set the rise snaps so the shell
wouldn't be to bulky, then snapped in the insert. I love having snap in
inserts, as they keep the insert from shifting around. My daughter is
just now walking, so this is important!
The shell was easy to snap on, and fits nice and trim. The diaper is
super adorable, and I had a hard time wanting to cover it up with pants!
The diaper withstood playing with her brother for several hours without
needing changed. We had no leaks, and the insert wasn't even soaked.
I changed and continued using the same shell for a good portion of the day. It was great during naps as well! It far exceeded my expectations in a cloth diaper.
I was sad when I was out of inserts for the day, so I continued using it
with prefolds. The shell did extremely well with these as well!
Like all the AI2 covers I've used, you can continue using this shell
until your baby poops, which is when you put the diaper in your dirty
storage until it's wash day. This drastically cuts down on diaper
laundry bulk, and allows the diapers to wash cleaner in the washing
machine. It also makes for smaller diaper bags as you don't need to
carry as many fully stuffed diapers, just take a few shells and several
inserts for your trip out.
Our next trial day was a trip to the zoo. We drove over two hours to
the Santa Ana Zoo. I changed her when we got there, and found that I
could have waited, the insert was barely damp. The next insert did
extremely well in the zoo. She was worn in a carrier around the zoo, no
compression problems at all!
I absolutely love this husband friendly diapering system. I highly recommend it to anyone looking at AI2 diapers for their child/children.
